Apistogramma macmasteri is a robust dwarf cichlid that has been kept by aquarists for many years. Apistogramma macmasteri was described by Dr. Sven Kullander in 1979 from fish that were collected in the Columbian state of Meta. The species was named for Mark Macmaster – a well known dwarf cichlid enthusiast who brought attention to the species in the early 1970’s. The species is found in the waters of the upper River Orinoco throughout northern Columbia and nearby Venezuelan areas. Additional field collections are needed to fully understand the range of the species. Records of the first imports of the species are lost but it was likely established in the hobby in the 1960’s and has been available since then.
Apistogramma Macmasteri commonly known as Apisto, is a mildly aggressive species, reaching a maximum size of 6cm. pH: 6.5-7.5, temperature: 24-27 degrees Celsius, breeding: cave spawner, diet: omnivorous. This species is dimorphic, meaning the males have more vibrant colours than females
